You must've been in school a while ago. Montenegro has been independent for twelve years now; Kosovo for ten. When you were in school, Pluto was a planet and (most likely) either Clinton or Bush was president. Are those still true nowadays?

Kosovo is still not recognized as independent in the UN. Serbia does not recognize their independence, therefore the UN doesn't. So, evacooper does have a point with Kosovo. As for Cyprus, Northern Cyprus (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus) is only recognized as independent by Turkey, while the Republic of Cyprus is in the EU.

While it's true that the UN does not recognize Kosovo, pretty much all of Western Europe does (with the exception of Spain) as well as other western countries such as the US, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Singapore etc.

100% with 3:47 left. Surprised to see that 95% knew about Denmark. I remember one time in LA I was in a cab, when some woman crashed her car into us, clearly not paying any attention. While we were waiting for a new cab, she asked us where we were from. We answered Denmark and after a couple of seconds of hesitation she said: 'Oh, that's in Germany, right?'

yes, thats how americans, in general, are... a bit below average. a few years ago i worked for 6 months in NY, and one time was talking about traveling and looking at the office map, with an american co-worker, then he pointed to Greenland and said a never visited this bit of Canada...i was terribly shocked, but managed to say "friend....that's Greenland it belongs to Denmark", and to increase even more my shock face, he asked "who are they?" to what i answered "Friend i have a lot of work to do with you before getting back to Portugal"...now he knows about geography, and already visited, Denmark (3 or 4 times), the Foroe islands and "that bit of Canada" (Greenland, for not americans), and ended up marring with a Norwegian gril that he met on Denmark. This guy was well educated guy with a PHD in mathemathics, so i was not expecting that.

Travelling is perhaps the best way to learn about geography. Most American, however, will never get the opportunity to travel far. That and the poor public education means that many Americans are not strong in geography.

Having almost certainly visited more countries in the world than you, Am, including more than half of the ones on this quiz, I can guarantee that your bigoted comment is absolute bullshit. I used to believe the lie that Americans are bad at geography. Then I started to think that, perhaps, they were basically the same as everyone else- concerned primarily with the state they are from and those surrounding it, plus a couple others they'd vacationed to or heard about on the news. Experience has taught me this was wrong and the rest of the world is much worse at geography than the average American. Can back this up with hundreds if not thousands of experiences with Danes, Norwegians, Brits, take your pick, and stories much more embarrassing than the Greenland/Canada one you just told us.

Thank you, Kalbahamut. A run-in with one or two people in a country who don't know geography does not mean the remaining 300,000,000+ people are the same. Remember that about half the people of every country are below average in any given subject, which means that about half are above average in that subject. Apparently Blaugrana and Arn met some of the lower 49%.

Must be nice to live on a continent with sooooo many other countries that are EASILY accessible by train. Unlike us poor "below average" Americans who "don't know geography". We have all of Canada and Mexico. Instead of being snotty about how much geography you "know" maybe you should just shut it and be grateful you are from a place where travel is easy and relativity inexpensive.

dcher: exactly. They don't. Just like the average American doesn't know which amorphous blob Hungary is. These things are roughly analogous. On the other hand, while traveling about Europe, I've lost count of how many times Europeans from neighboring countries have not known where I was when I told them I was in Thessaloniki, or Sofia, or Skopje, or Odessa, or Iasi, or Minsk, or Kiev, or Riga, or Vilnius, or Malmo, or Krakow, or even St Petersburg. I can't imagine being in the United States and being in any city of comparable size and an American not knowing where I was.
I also get asked probably 10-15x a week where I drove here from. So far over the course of 2 years of receiving this question I've had exactly 2 Europeans know that Bahrain is a country and where it is.

I think it would be hard to gather meaningful statistical evidence of any correlation between nationality and geographical knowledge. We'll all suffer confirmation bias. Even were I not sceptical of kalbahamut's 'thousands' of examples, which I am, the plural of 'anecdote' is still not 'data'. One statistic I find interesting is the percentage of USA'ers (not a great term, but I'm no longer happy lumping them in with all other 'Americans') who have passports. According to https://goo.gl/aPCx7D, less than half. But let's not be too quick to judge. Think of the astonishing range of adventure, culture and geography available to any citizen of the USA WITHOUT requiring a passport, and how far you can travel on an intra-national roadtrip. I suspect that many of those criticizing the septics for their ignorance never do anything so adventurous. It's very easy right now to be critical of Americans. Trivial, in fact. Just make sure you don't end up being what you claim to despise.

Hey let some Americans speak for themselves! I am a proud American (and Indian) who has gone to the State Geography Bee 3 times (4th thru 6th) and I can defend myself saying that I am not like the rest of the Americans. It is true that the Geography Bee was created because of American geographical ignorance.

American is the most correct term because it's the term that most effectively conveys your intended meaning. Don't be ignorant.

Fewer than half of all Americans have a valid passport. This includes those whose passports have expired. So what? What does this have to do with having knowledge of geography?

I spent a year working in South Korea working alongside Brits, Kiwis, Canadians, etc. I would chat with in the break room. Every single day at work I would converse in English with young students on a range of subjects including geography. Average class size was 8-15 students. I taught five classes a day and the classes would change monthly.
I spent six years living and teaching in Saudi Arabia, 2 years working for a British company where I was the only American, working with many Brits, South Africans, Australians, Norwegians, Nigerians, Filipinos, Egyptians, Syrians, Jordanians, Sudanese, Pakistanis, Indians, Germans, etc.
+1

Mar 28, 2018
Every single work day for six years I would spend 4-8 hours a day engaged in conversation with students on a variety of subjects including geography. Classes schedules changed on a weekly basis. I can't calculate how many different students I interacted with. In my free time, living in a Saudi neighborhood in Riyadh, and later in a neighborhood full of mostly Asian and African expats in Bahrain, avoiding Western expat enclaves, most of the time being the only American around, I would routinely speak with people who would ask me where I was from or want to talk about where they were from.
I left Saudi Arabia and Bahrain in 2014 and began driving. I've been traveling full time since then for almost 4 years. Never spending more than 3 months in the same place. I stay with people I meet through Couch Surfing, or I'll sleep at hostels full of other (mostly European) travelers. I tutored many different European/Turkish/Israeli students along the way.
+1
level 73
Mar 28, 2018
I'd meet new people at hostels, through Couch Surfing, on OK Cupid or Tinder, through AirBNB, or just out and about. This has been my life every day since September 2014. Often moving locations every few days. Constantly meeting new people.

You still think I've not had hundreds if not thousands of personal experiences with this? Almost every *single* person I met while living as an expat and traveling the past 12 years has asked me where I was from. You think I haven't met 200 people since the beginning of 2007? The "hundreds if not thousands" of experiences claim I made was modest if anything. I've probably got tens of thousands of data points in my head that confirm that people outside of America are horrible at geography, moreso than Americans.

and, yes, I agree 100% we all suffer from confirmation bias. But as I pointed out above my original bias was believing in the bullpoop cliche that Americans are bad at geography. That's what I expected. But it's not so.

This is false. But a common chauvunistic and bigoted belief amongst some. Not all countries are equal. Think of it this way. If all countries really are exactly equivalent... let's say person A can name every city in the country of Monaco, and person B can name every city in China. You are saying that these two people have a comparable amount of geographic knowledge. And... even if it were true that having a comprehensive knowledge about US states were not equivalent to having a comprehensive knowledge about the continent of Europe (it's not true), that is actually immaterial as, amazingly, many Europeans really don't know much about other European countries, either. A Frenchman, for example, probably knows a good bit about France. And they might know some stuff about Germany and the UK and Belgium. But.... press them for information about Ukraine? Greece? Belarus? You'll get a lot of blank stares. On average.

I would say Turkey is an Asian country, as a Norwegian. When you have countries like that, which can be difficult to decide, you have to look at more general factors, which I definitely would say is language and culture. Turkish is a lot more similar to langauges spoken on the Western border of Turkey, and those countries are in Asia. And Turkey is an Islamic country, which also is very West-Asian.

There are a billion arguments you can make about this, but Turkey is part Europe, part Asia. Just like Russia. To counter some of your arguments: -Kosovo is also Islamic, -Finnish and Hungarian are not Indo-European languages, but they are spoken in Europe. Not to mention both the Byzantine empire and the Ottoman empire had a huge influence in European history. none of this is clear-cut In fact, it's not clear to me that Europe and Asia are separate continents at all.

Serbia did not have the civil war. The Albanian terrorist organisation called UCK (Kosovo Liberation Army) tried to seize the region by murders, ethnic cleansing and the expulsion of the Serbs living there. When the Serbian Army came and started to reclaim the land, USA started to perceive Serbia (a Russian ally) as a threat and decided to start a war campaign against Belgrade. We all know what happened next. Please find the Czech National TV documentary about it entitled "Stolen Kosovo"

Mar 28, 2018
The Serbs have done far worse than anything the ethnic Albanians in Kosovo did. And the USA perceiving Serbia as a threat in 1999? that's cute. The Cold War was over in 1991. In 1999 Boris Yeltsin was president of Russia and relations between Russia and the US and Western Europe were probably the best they've been since the end of World War 2. It's ridiculous to assert that any action taken by NATO, the UN, the ICJ or the USA in the Balkans in the late 90s through the late 2000s was somehow meant to spite or contain Russia.
NATO decided to intervene in Kosovo in 1999 to stop Serbian ethnic cleansing taking place. Kosovo did not declare independence until 9 years later in 2008, and the declaration was ruled legal by the International Court of Justice- an organization that the USA has little influence over. While it's true that there were both Serbian and Albanian partisans fighting over Kosovo, the documentary you cite sounds very biased.

Cyprus is in the European Union and in the eurozone and therefore uses the euro as their currency. Geographically and on Jetpunk quizzes, it is in Asia (Middle East to be exact), because it is nearby... As for Northern Cyprus though: "In 1983 the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) declared independence, although Turkey is the only country that recognizes it. The international community considers the TRNC's territory as Turkish-occupied territory of the Republic of Cyprus."

The UK voted to leave the EU. Not Europe.

Aside: it's so weird now the EU to many people here is synonymous with Europe. It seems to me like the issue many people try to make with the USA being referred to as "America," except in this case it's actually a legitimate slight. Because while nobody is confused when you call the United States "America," referring to the EU as "Europe" to the exclusion of all non-EU countries (and sometimes, confusingly, to the exclusion of non-Schengen countries in the EU) is very confusing!

If Cyprus is not considered part of Europe geographically, then why are Malta, United Kingdom, Ireland, Greenland and Iceland? The UK and Ireland and Malta are not geographically connected to Europe (and until this EURO Union thing, you seldom heard of them being lumped together with the European Mainland). As for Greenland, politically it may belong to Denmark but geographically it is closer to the American Continent (Canada to be exact). Iceland seems to be in a Non-man's land, equidistant from both continents.

I feel like I should give a more complete answer.

Cyprus is closer to Asia than Europe; thus it makes sense for it to be included as part of Asia. Brits, in particular, have been referring to 'the Continent' (the European mainland) for centuries, which would be rather odd if they could just call it Europe, not being part of it as you claim. Greenland is, indeed, close to Canada...vast uninhabited swaths of Canadian islands and northern land. Meanwhile, it is also not too far from Europe, is part of Denmark, and has been considered part of Europe for hundreds of years. Malta and Ireland have similar reasons to be part of Europe - both are just a few hundred miles at most from the mainland and much further away from other continents. And Iceland is (under the definition that the northern reaches and distant islands of Canada shouldn't really count under the circumstances) much closer to Europe.

Honestly, no one really cares that you got X:XX. Being a quicker typist doesn't allow you to gloat to other people that you can. Yay, you can type the countries of Europe in under 5 minutes. Being able to accomplish this task does not make you any more special than anyone else. It just proves that you have a better ability to type and memorize (Don't get me started on cheating) than other people, or not really since anyone can do it in a few weeks or days and everyone brags about their special ability "to memorize countries" and can do anything with this such minor power.
